The Rev. Al Sharpton, who recently urged that radio host Don Imus be fired for making a racially insensitive remark, said in a debate that "those of us who believe in God" will defeat Republican Mitt Romney for the White House.

Holy Bigots Batman! Al Sharpton Knocks Mormons?!
Justin Hart

Yesterday Al Sharpton said: "As for the one Jew running for office, those who really believe in God will defeat him anyway, so don't worry, that's a temporary situation."

Are you kidding me! Oh, wait... I got that quote wrong.... here's the actual quote:

"As for the one Mormon running for office, those who really believe in God will defeat him anyway, so don't worry, that's a temporary situation."

Does that sound any better? As Hugh Hewitt points out... if Al said:

If Al had declared that a Buddhist, Hindu or Muslim or candidate would be defeated by those "who really believe in God," how great would the outcry be?

I'm speechless?!

For all his banter and vile against Imus (some of it justified) -- how does he justify these comments? Any ideas on how to counter this? I'll have more later.

Those who were less valiant in pre-existence and who thereby had certain spiritual restrictions impose on them during mortality are known to us as the negroes. Such spirits are sent to earth through the lineage of Cain, the mark put upon him for his rebellion against God, and his murder of Able being a black skin. . . . Noah's son married Egyptus, a descendant of Cain, thus preserving the negro lineage through the flood. . . . the negro are not equal with other races where the receipt of certain spiritual blessings are concern. . . .

Let's academically disclaim that the book "Mormon Doctrine" is not actually a book of mormon doctrine, nor is it published or sold by said church. It's the writings of a man, who had his own opinions. Granted, he was a church leader with a strong academic background, but nonetheless he was speaking outside of his calling on topics the church didn't have a statement on (like the evils of psychiatry and tattoos Wink ).

Anyway, I just write that to say that the quote above may or may not have been respresentative of a statistically significant proportion of members of the Mormon church. I simply don't know. Most historians will tell you Joseph Smith's strict abolitionist arguments were a chunk of what got him killed... at the same time, all churches as far as I'm aware accepted the Cain/dark-skin argument, because it's a common reading of the Book of Genesis. Said argument has nothing to do with current Mormonism, however.

I'm curious.....do Christian's believe that Adam/Eve were Caucasian in skin color?

As far as Sharpton and his thoughts/beliefs.....hypocritical = yes.......representative of common Christian belief = yes.

Perhaps we should have a dermatologist read Genesis in Hebrew and let us know the answer to your question. :wink:
